    Hi guys. Tried to retrofit DIS and it's a big splined bolt holding the wheel on. Any idea what size tool I need? Thanks

    You need an "M12 Spline" bit - worth getting a set to remove many other items on the B6 like front seats etc. like this - Sealey AK219.
    The Steering Wheel nut should be replaced if removed (Audi Part No. N 907 991 02) - according to the Workshop Manual - although you could clean off threads on the old one and apply some Loctite thread sealer. A new bolt has the sealant bonded to the end of a new thread.

    it is wise to disconnect the cars battery before you handle any air bags,

    And don't turn the ignition on while the airbag is disconnected or else you'll be plagued by the airbag light.

    Just for reference I purchased the Sealey AK219 from eBay, cost less than £16 delivered and arrived within 2 days!

    Sorry but this is getting painful! Does anyone know the screw type and size for the cowling?

    Thanks
